04/05? Craftsman 8hp 27" snowblower repair

My snowblower's drive stopped while using it. I think it might have lost a belt, as the auger is working fine. I don't have a manual for this unit, and sears doesent sell this particular model anymore. I also can't figure out how to get to the belts. I need assistance. Can anyone help me out?
Thanks

Right in front of the engine is a plastic cover, remove it and you will see where your belts go. The pulley closest to the front of your machine will be the auger belt and the rear belt will be the traction drive. If you can, please post the full model number of your snowblower here and we can see if we can find you some info on it.

Craftsman snowblower info

Thanks for the tip about fixing my snowblower. I will try to access the belts tommorrow when there is some light. The model # is 536.881800. Do you think Sears will have the replacement belt, if needed, or can I get it elsewhere?
Thanks again!!

The part number for the drive belt is 579932 and the auger belt number is 585416. As repair guy said, just go to the site with your model number and you can d/l a parts breakdown.

Any Murray/Briggs & Stratton dealer in your area will be able to get these, as well as any other, parts for you as this is a Murray product which is now owned by Briggs.
